|Ready for work...

Today is a Microsoft holiday... but |
1) other people have local families, and
2) I'd like to have the 31st off, for kightp's visit.
And they need someone to cover the phones.
Today will either be very easy and slow, or a madhouse... I don't think there's any likelihood of there being any in-between. Who is going to do major database work on Christmas Eve, unless it's an emergency?
Ah well. Yesterday, I went jogging for the first time in forever; I kept my breath, and my heartrate didn't kill me, and my legs are pleasantly achy, no problems with knees or hips. And, I managed to crank out a story I *hope* works for a closing-in-on-5-year-old. I never realized how much anxiety these story-writing episodes can produce.
So, I'm tired, a bit moody, and anxious, all at once. But there's an espresso machine heating up, a ham-and-egg sandwich about to be made, and a candle-making vigil to be held tonight. (I normally hold my overnight vigil on the solstice - but given illness (minor ear infection, 1.5 days of antibiotics left) and timing, Christmas Eve seemed even better this year.)
Final note to self: remember, *no cafeteria workers* - bring food for lunch. You can't count on getting a lunch hour when on phone support... certainly not a *timely* lunch hour!
